White House: Hey, here’s a pic that proves Obama is totally focused on national security

Check it out you wingnutty wingnuts. President Obama is all about the national security thingies.

Sure, you didn’t buy it when he skipped an intel briefing to yuk it up with volunteers in Vegas. Or when he staged a photo op flanked by the caskets of four Americans killed at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi. Or when his Twitter account hawked campaign sweatshirts as the men murdered on his watch arrived at Andrews Air Force Base. Or when his administration blamed a crummy movie for the continuing spread of unjustifiable Islamist violence on Jihad Friday.

But he totally took a phone call about security stuff while campaigning in Colorado. And there’s photographic evidence!

The president sat down for his photo op, but some Twitter users still see an empty chair.

That look of laser-like focus in Obama’s eyes can only mean one thing: Beyoncé took his call! Let’s hope she has some words of wisdom on national security and foreign policy. Maybe he’ll listen to a 3 a.m. phone call from her.

      That, and does that other guy have clearance? Is he making campaign calls? I guess they decided to use the phone bank since there appear to be so many phones not being used.

      • http://www.spacecoastconservative.com/ SpaceCoastConservative.com

        Hubby says it could be, it depends on the kinds of connections they use, but they’re not all marked in an obvious manner. He says it looks like a 2006-2008 phone that could be secure, not an up-to-date one.
        Hubby says a NS briefing would NOT be given over an insecure line and if the other guy had no clearance if he was on the same line, it would not happen with the other guy listening. Even with the other guy in the room, nope, not going to happen without him having clearance.
        Most Presidents would take notes during an intel/NS briefing, hubby points out. IF it was important to him.
        My first reaction was that he was making campaign calls or ordering pizza (if moosehelle was not there). I don’t see a hotel conference room as secure enough to take a NS briefing, just in case discussion ensued. Walls have ears, even with security personell around.
        Gut check: Not.

    • Smart Grunt

      Those VOIP phones can be secured, but any classified equipment is always marked. There are no visible classification stickers, so I would say it’s an unsecured line.

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        @Smart Grunt:
        Wouldn’t they more likely be using point-to-point encryption?

        You can buy a set of self-synchronizing ear-mouth encryption units (the kind that slip over the ear piece & mouthpiece of a handset) inexpensively these days and the encryption is supposed to meet or exceed military specs.

        Of course, with the way the pResident leaks secrets, perhaps they don’t even bother w/secured lines, encryption, p2p tunneling, et al.

        They’d probably be just as happy using Aunt Harridan’s partyline.
        (…do people still know what that was: Not an 800 number for immoral purposes…)

        • Smart Grunt

          There are several methods for encrypting calls, but they wouldn’t use anything that’s COTS for presidential communications. Encrypted doesn’t mean secure, just less vulnerable. Encrypted comms on an unsecure line or in an unsecure area can still be intercepted. And it isn’t necessary to physically tap the wire or bug a room these days.

          • Grumpa Grumpus

            @Smart Grunt:

            Thx for the clarification!

            I still dabble, but I haven’t teally been needed to be “working everyday knowledgeable” for years.

            I spent the last 2 decades before I retired becoming and being a baker, (I loved it like nothing else, but retired after a series of strokes 7yrs ago at 89).

            Before that I was in a mathematics-based profession that required that I knew somewhat about encryption, and signal compression and computer systems. I miss that sometimes, too, but lost alot.

            And it isn’t necessary to physically tap the wire or bug a room

            I appreciate the information, thank you! While I doubt you could read the vibrations on the windows in that environment, or would use inductive hysteresis to capture the signal when you could just intercept the datastream enroute, my point was that w/the current pResident, all the complex methods are probably unnecessary. Simply promise cash for his campaign or stroke his vanity and he’ll hand over the keys to whatever you want!

            I’m sorry I didn’t make my point clearly before. It’s a hazard b/c of old age fatigue, so I beg pardon.

            Thank agin for the nice update!
            A good evening to you, Sir!

        Less than 5 miles from Golden is the Federal Center, the largest collection of Federal civilian employees outside of D.C. Every department in the government has operations here. The Federal Center is basically where the government operates if D.C. is taken out. There is/are top secret secure area(s) in the Center for the President to conduct a secure conversation with staff and cabinet.

        If you want to check it out on Google maps it is located in Lakewood just south of US-6 almost at the base of the mountains.

    One could reasonably wonder why the President is even out campaigning right now, while our embassies all over the Middle East/Africa are under attack.
    One could posit that a _real_ President would be in DC where he can be more readily able to get intel and make decisions as needed, since he’s the Commander in Chief. Even if it cost him the election, a _real_ President would be more concerned with our National Security and the security of our people and our sovereign soil overseas, until things are brought under control. What, he can’t take a week off from campaigning?

    That’s what I think a _real_ President would do.

    Trying to arange another false flag op while on the campaign trail.

  • jackiedoss

    haha! All he has to do ask Michelle, who will tell him that obesity is the biggest national security threat. No need to spend so much time on the phone. (notice it’s not a red phone. If it had been a red phone, he definitely would have been talking to Michelle about national security. He’s just talking to Beyonce and wants Michelle to THINK he’s talking about 20 oz sodas.

    Obama’s “I love broccoli” moment.

    He was making tee time for his post – fundraiser event, just before he sat down with a crack smoking rapper for a difficult set of questions such as,” when you was choomin, was it Maui Wowi or Purple Haze?

  • stuckinIL4now

    For all we know, he was on the phone with his bookie.

    Ok if he’s talking NATIONAL SECURITY stuff…why is he doing it in a phone bank room? with “some guy” on another phone? I thought National Security meant “secure” stuff. Looks like a common area to me, but then he did allow Axelrod in on the Tuesday security meetings, oh yeah, and it was right at the same time all the “leaks’ started…..things that make ya go hmmmmmm??…

    • Ramone Love

      The ‘some guy’ you refer to in the pic is Tom Donilon, I think, his national security adviser. And Donilon is also the guy widely rumored to be the source of all the leaks.

      • Adela Wagner

        Okay so if he REALLY IS on a call, “some guy” is right there with him perhaps instantly leaking. Thanks for helping to clear me up. But still The King gets the throne-ish chair. And I still don’t trust that Axelrod, he’s a squirrelly kinda guy.

  • Legirons

    Those don’t look like any STU phones I’ve ever seen. He should’a used a two tin cans and some string. The libs will all point to this as proof that he’s on top of all the issues, when he’s probably talking to some 900 number.

  • Alfred King of Wessex

    What he was saying was….Obama: “That’s right. That last batch of Wagu beef was too salty. At $115 a pound for the White House Wed. parties…..I have a duty to make sure when I spend the taxpayers money, the beef I buy is perfect. Oh….and send over another few pounds of that Caspian beluga caviar. Not that cheap stuff….but the expensive stuff. And send an extra jar for Michelle to take on her next trip……make that two, we travel on separate jumbo jets. I have a call from National Security….the pain’s in the asses…but I’ll call right back to finish my order.

  • Chip

    Obama, on the phone…. sure he wasn’t ordering a pizza?

  • Gregg Van Oss

    Look at his face and tell me he’s not ordering pizza.

  • auzerais310

    Uh, this is President Obama. I want to make a super-secret secure private phone call to someone called “Pimp with a Limp”. It is of utmost highest national security that this call goes through so I get re-elected in November, you understand? The future of the new world-wide Caliphate my friends in the Muslim Brotherhood and I are building together.”

  • lana ward

    In person just might make a better photo op? Just a thought

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Going through this thread made me laugh so hard….

    The thread winner is! “He’s ordering pizza!”
    Just scroll and see all the pizza responses, lol.

    If this is “evidence” of anything, it is evidence that they really DO think we are butt-stupid!
    He shows nothing but contempt for this country and its citizens.

    That room, those phones and someone on another line in same room, dont think so. This is completely stage PR photo and a badly done one.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sandye.clanton Sandy E Clanton

    at least the above fake photo op they made sure he had the phone right side up! 😮

  • http://www.facebook.com/sandye.clanton Sandy E Clanton

    at least the fake photo op above they made sure he had the phone in the right direction! hehehe i have to laugh to keep from cryin…”we gotta let him go” – Clint Eastwood. And didn’t i read somewhere “Barry” aka Obama said that ‘if forced to make a choice, I would side with my muslim brothers’.

  • http://www.youtube.com/mexipol1 Edolicious

    Does this look like a national security conference call, or does this look like a phone bank? Look at what’s on the table, the creases in the table cloth, the stacked chairs – do you think that’s really a secure line?

  • Paul C.

    Looks like a campaign call for $$$$$.

  • BeeKaaay

    Caption: That’s right, and I’m very firm on this. I must get that information right away. That menu from that posh restaurant is very important.

  • John Fowler

    It would have been nice if he’d been that focused when we had advance warning of the attacks, so we could have prepared.

  • kmbog

    It’s 9:34am in America, who’s in charge?

  • loveofcountry

    i remember a photo from the last election…..similar surroundings only he was holding the phone upside down, but looking really serious…..hahaha

    Now if that was down in Colorado Springs he could be calling up Pastor Ted, who doesn’t believe in gay marriage, just renting it by the hour.

    Obama is a multi-tasker, after all two faces, forked tongue, with all that he can really screw this country in half the time

    Acting like he’s involved–big phony. Big dangerous phony
